Hi. After a user uploads a PNG or JPG image by using the Fileupload control, is there a way to resize such image straight with ASP.NET (vb)?

Thanks.

Try something like the following - it's a little simplified, but shows the mechanics:
Dim image As System.Drawing.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(FileUpload1.FileContent)

Dim resized As System.Drawing.Image = New System.Drawing.Bitmap(image, New System.Drawing.Size(300, 200))
resized.Save("Somepath.png")

Open in new window

Be sure to add in a reference to System.Drawing.dll in order for Carl Tawn's code to work  = )

A reference to the System.Drawing assembly should be included by default, but it won't do any harm to double check ;)

Just throwing this into the mix :)

I use the component below in my classic asp pages, but the resizing part of it is written in vb.net, may be worth taking a look
